Escape from the T-Rex!

Designed by Alison Johnston, Take Root Garden Design

Filled with muddy footprints, joy and laughter – sculptures are not of cool crisp corten, but sun-faded dinosaurs lurking underneath a lush leaf, waiting to strike their next prey!

Thick jungly leaves hide hunting dinosaurs and introduce children to the different textures, colours and shapes within nature. Chosen for their toughness, their ability to have leaves pulled off and explored, this border is for daily, active play. Child and animal safe, designed to be touched, smelled and observed.

Alison Johnston - BB concept

A small puddly pond is included, perfect for washing off muddy creatures and inviting for any birds wanting to drink and bathe during quieter moments. A submerged solar fountain adds movement and fun for kids – blocking the solar panel will allow the jet to be turned off when necessary. 

Big rocks and mossy sticks form part of the scenery, playing home to mini-beasts and insects.
